Need help. Red immobiliser light comes on when driving. When switched off car will not start til it cools down. May take up to 2 hours to restart. Mr Nissan has to fix it as it requires Nissan computer reader. Problem is they have had it for 2 days, replaced immobiliser, but they still have not got any answers. They did say they will spend more time on Monday. Any help would be great fire power for Monday .Just got back from Cape York so guess I'm lucky there. Thanks Brian (Gympie)

Hi Brian

Have a look on patrol4x4
plenty of information about the problem you are having in the forums.

Personally I would be removing the immoboliser off the back of the injector pump and just connecting the ignition straight to the fuel cut-off solenoid.

Hi

Use your other ignition key. Problem could be in the key not the vehicle.

This was the case in a customers vehicle, same year and model as yours, on a desert trip.

Changed keys and no more problem. Don't ask me why or how but it worked for us. Good thing to as we were on the Madigan Line.

Good Luck

Cheers Teza

Had similar problem on same vehicle model a few weeks ago....4.2TDi 2004 model. Had to have it towed to repair shop where they removed the solenoid. The red light is ON all the time when driving but still flashes normally when engine is off so appears as though NATS is still working. It would be have been a MAJOR problem if the immobiliser had failed when 'out bush'

I've had this problem as well & Nissan were a waste of time & money & wanted to charge me $7000.00 to fix it. (new injector pump & solenoid)

On mine, I found it was the solenoid at the back of the injection pump so had it removed by turbo glide at Wollongong they charged a few hours of work.

its appears quite common on patrols & cruisers

good luck
regards Vince

Do not go to Nissan it will cost you up to $1500

I have just been through the whole saga. Same symtoms as you, and I kept the mighty Poootrol on the road, by continual;ly disconnecting the battery, every time I went out, or had to get to work, a real pain.
I tried everything, and like you found no permanent cure.
Apparently they are not waterproof, and there is the problem.
We did Cape York, last yaer.

I ended up paying $400 to get the bloody NATS thing taken off the fuel cut off solenoid, done just on this Friday gone.
To do it properly, so as not to damege anything else, the Injector Pump has to be removed. Then underneath everything else is a standard Bosche Fuel shut of solenoid.
My dash light works fine, and so does the door locks, but ince fixed the bloody light stays on.
Yesterday ( Sat) I spent a couple of hours, adding a mini toggle switch on the LHS dash cluster to enable me to switch off the light, when driving, as it annoyed me.

Ring me if you want, and chat about it on 03 5672 3370

Cheers
Bucky

Opps

I should have added, that a reputable injector service centre will do the job.


I did not want to stuff anything up by removing the injector pump, with my "oassion fingers", but I did try a few of the things, mentioned on the Patrol Forum, but non seemed to work.
Reason being...
Apparently, the 3 wires going into the black security box, on top of the fuel shut off solenoid, do not directly connect to the solenoid itself. There is another wire from the circuit board to the top of the shut off valve, that you have to get at.

Cheers

Thanks for the help. as the car is at Nissan in pieces it is a bit hard to take it anywhere at the moment. I did tell the service manager if its not fixed by Monday I will take it elsewhere. He thought that might be a good idea. Thanks Brian
